General Information

The TEAS, developed by Assessment Technologies, Inc. (ATI), is an assessment of basic knowledge in reading comprehension, mathematics, science, and English. TEAS testing at the Office of Academic Testing is available to both UNF program applicants and students applying to programs at other institutions. 


TEAS is the required Nursing Admissions entrance exam for Regular Prelicensure and Accelerated Prelicensure BSN tracks. UNF applicants, be sure to visit the TEAS information for Regular & Accelerated Prelicensure BSN page.


The closest alternate TEAS test site is Daytona State College.  A list of alternate test sites is available on the Nursing Admission Department's TEAS web page.
